What is green and red and yellow?

Recommended Posts

I started pulling implements out of the shed attic. The cutter has never been used, note the shiny pullies! The earthcavator looks to be repainted but appears there is no wear.

Also, it appears my mouse poison is not having the desired effect. The mouse put it in my cup holder in an attempt to take me out ( it was in a device in the corner of the barn) it was all gone so I figured they ate it and died, guess not.

It might be green but that is one nice looking set-up Scott.

Best mouse trap I ever used was a 5 gallon bucket with peanut butter cookies dropped in once a day sitting next to wooden bench about the same height. Learned that in Delta one winter working on missile field 3. Got at least one a day for 11 days, then the foreman caught me with my kill stick one morning. Said they were his pets.

hrm good idea on the bucket. I have seen that trick with some water in it but cant bring myself to drowning them but am fine with poison or snap traps...weird I guess. I guess the bucket idea would work but re-locating the ba^%#rds probably wouldn't work either.

I guess I never thought about it, maybe the mouse was trying to take out big green, tho I would have figured the air cleaner over the cupholder!

as far as the story, they are just 2 things I picked up in the past that I never used. I plan to use the weed cutter, the earthcavator, not sure yet

The green color had nothing to do with it. I had mice transfer the Decon pellets from one Simplicity to another Simplicity tractor and they never touched my John Deere that was sittng next to both of them.

a 5 gallon bucket half full with some corn floating and put a 2x4 ramp works great for chipmunks. my in laws have then at there house they are getting in the house and causing trouble so i told them about the bucket and in about a week they were pretty much all gone.

Made it safe and sound. May add a bigger cooler for the tranny but the 800 ftlbs of torque was plenty to pull it. Trailer is about 2500 lbs, tractor 8000+ and maybe 800 lbs+ in the bed.
